They handle most of the day-to-day running of the kingdom. The Ministry of Honesty handles news reporting and investigation, making sure that the ponies of Equestria are kept well-informed of anything that goes on. The Ministry of Kindness exists as a connection between the government and the citizens. Its job is to communicate with citizens and understand what they want, hope, and fear, so the government can best serve their wishes. The Ministry of Generosity handles economics. Its job is to set up charities, build roads, collect taxes, and otherwise make sure goods and services get where they need to be. The Ministry of Laughter is public relations. It plans festivals, plays, and other special events that keep the ponies happy during their day-to-day lives. The Ministry of Loyalty is in charge of Equestria's police and military. It trains ponies into devoted defenders of the nation, tasked to keep the peace, ensuring that citizens remain safe and obey the law. The Ministry of Magic is smaller than the others, and is mainly centered in the capital city of Canterlot. It is involved with researching magic and science and educating young ponies.
